To celebrate the role that artists play in the economic and social development of Latin America and the Caribbean region, the World Bank Art Program conceived About Change, a program of exhibitions of contemporary visual arts organized in collaboration with the Cultural Center of the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB) and the Art Museum of the Americas, Organization of American States (OAS). The exhibitions include artworks selected during an open Call for Entries (January- April 2010) as well as a small selection from the permanent collections of the partners. Works chosen during the open Call for Entries are by contemporary visual artists from all member states in the region. The exhibitions provide a comprehensive overview of current artistic spheres and specialties.
The categories of visual art for About Change are the following: ne arts (painting, sculpture, drawing, video, printmaking, photography, mixed media, video art, experimental lm and digital animation); decorative arts, including design (product design, graphic design, textile and fashion design); and folk art (popular art, indigenous art and craft).
